The Way of the Master
How to share your faith simply, effectively, biblically… the way Jesus did
The material in this book has been revised and considerably expanded from Ray’s earlier book: Revival’s Golden Key: Unlocking the Door to Revival
“I have over 1,000 books on evangelism, soul-winning, and revival in my personal library, and none of them are worthy to be compared to this book.” —R.W. Jones, Word of Truth Ministries
Do you shy away from sharing the true gospel message with others, unsure of what to say, afraid of rejection and ridicule?
That’s not what Jesus did.
Jesus was not afraid to shake people up. He spoke openly of their sinful nature and the righteousness of God. He forced people to confront their sin head-on, and He brought them face-to-face with their need for salvation—because He loved them.

Do you think you already know how to share the gospel effectively?
According to numerous reports, all is not well in the contemporary Church. There are millions who insinuate that they belong to Jesus Christ, but whose lives dont match their claims. Equally disheartening are results of Americas evangelism efforts. Alarm bells should go off when we see statistics like this:
- In one year a major U.S. denomination claimed to have obtained 294,784 decisions for Christ. Unfortunately, they could find only 14,337 in fellowship.
- A mass crusade reported 18,000 decisions, yet tragically, 94 percent failed to ever become incorporated into a local church.
- Less than five percent of those who responded to an altar call during a public crusade are living a Christian life one year later.
Here is the dilemma: Up to 95 percent of the evangelistic crop is failing, both in mass crusades and in local churches. It withers and dies as soon as the sunlight of tribulation, persecution, and temptation shines on it. And those who do occupy our churches often fail to grow into vibrant witnesses for Jesus Christ.
This tragic problem has come about simply because we have lost the precious key to revival. This book will put the key in your hand!
This book is eloquent and eye-opening. You may find yourself reading it more than once. When you're done, pass it on to a friend or member of your church staff.
Although prayer is without question a great key to revival, this book is not about prayer. It’s about a key that much of the Church doesn’t even know exists.

“I have served as a local pastor, Teen Challenge Director, Crusade Director for David Wilkerson, and missionary, but never during those years did I encounter an evangelist with a more life-changing message.”
—Pastor Bob Rogers, Dallas, Texas
“A shattering publication!”
“[This] is a message every congregation needs to hear.”
—Tom Elliff, Past-president, Southern Baptist Convention (1996-1998)
“I will do all I can to encourage our Fellowship [11,000 churches] to avail themselves of the teachings and ministry of Ray Comfort.”
—Charles E. Hackett, Director of Home Missions, Assembly of God
“I don’t know of an evangelist today who has a better grasp of how to communicate Christ to the totally secular mind of our day than Ray Comfort.”
—David E. Clippard, Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma
“Ray Comfort… cuts to the core of man’s spiritual dilemma. As we pray for revival and wonder what God’s waiting for, we need to seriously consider this message. To ignore it puts us in spiritual peril.”
—Terry Meeuwsen, Co-host of The 700 Club
“It didn’t take long to catch the vision of what God was trying to say to me through [this] teaching, and my evangelistic message changed drastically.”
—Mike Weygandt, Director of International Ministries, The Voice of the Martyrs
